Twin Falls Chamber Joins Senator Risch’s Holiday Initiative to Support Idaho Businesses – Support Local Gems: All Season Long

Idaho’s small businesses are the lifeblood of our communities, but supply chain disruptions, rising costs and inflation, and more have brought increased challenges to “Main Street” establishments across our state.

This holiday season, the Twin Falls Area Chamber of Commerce has teamed up with Senator Jim Risch to present Support Local Gems: All Season Long; a holiday revival of the statewide Support Local Gems initiative.

Idahoans are invited to do their Christmas and holiday shopping at their favorite small businesses. Anyone can participate by shopping safely in person or online, purchasing gift cards, ordering food via take-out or delivery, and encouraging others to do so, too.

Idahoans can also engage in no-cost means of support: write a positive review, promote a local business on social media with the hashtag #SupportLocalGems, or thank a business for all that they do for our communities.

We hope your business will take part in the Support Local Gems: All Season Long initiative.

Participating is easy:

  • Ensure your business is accessible online, making it easy for customers to purchase items and gift cards, or order take-out or delivery.
  • Consider offering customers a Support Local Gems promotional deal.
  • Spread the word about Support Local Gems: All Season Long using the hashtag #SupportLocalGems.

Senator Jim Risch’s office has developed a free Support Local Gems: All Season Long media toolkit with graphics, suggested social media posts, and an email outreach template for partners, small businesses, and supporters to use. This toolkit is available on Senator Risch’s website.

Happy Holidays!
